7:02pm
boston bruins. hi everybody. thanks for joining us. i'm dave strader. what a great night for hockey. if you think it's the home team advantage, boston. the team with momentum? advantage toronto. they won the last two games in the series. the team with the most game seven experience? advantage boston. they played and won last year and three others. if you think it is the underdog with nothing to lose it goes back to toronto. one guy who played in game seven and broadcast a lot of them my partner, brian, does anything i mentioned or any of these factors play a role in what we'll see here tonight snncht all of them do. adversity is the catalyst in this situation. i see two different categories of player. either a fear of failure guy or the hero. for the goaltender it's fear of failure because every shot and every goal against makes a difference. you can't be the hero until the end of the game. guys like zdeno chara on defense live in both worlds. they have to be careful but they want to beç a difference makers
7:03pm
well. joffrey lupul and jaromir jagr up front are guys that live to be heroes and take those chances and shots when they get them. we'll see how it all develops here tonight. >> dave: we are ready for the first game seven between boston and toronto in 54 years. ♪ [ piano ] at honda, we know you. we know you're not always on top of it.

7:10pm
it'll be james reimer considered to be perhaps the weak link for toronto in the series. he was pretty good in the first four and has been terrific inç the last two both 2-1 wins for the toronto maple leafs. on the other end tuukka rask. not a great memory. it was a loss here against philadelphia, 2010 on the way to the stanley cup finals. rask will try to erase that memory. as the leafs and the bruins, 80 plus years of a rivalry in the national hockey league, and this is only the third game seven that these two franchises have gone head to head. david krejci with the familiar linemates of nathan horton and milan lucic. lucic on the far side. two on one here.
7:11pm
horton. shot, save, rebound! off the side of the net. cleared aside by gardiner. >> brian: he had three shots at that. >> dave: up around the boards and picked up by the bruins. lucic to the front of net. redirected as jagr got a stick on that. then a little pushing and shoving after the whistle. >> brian: what a start for the boston bruins. you would think franson would have learned from gameç four because he got caught up in the offensive zone and early on here for the boston bruins. >> dave: there's the second chance there by jagr. there's franson stepping up on the play. very similar to game four in overtime. >> brian: really good saves there by reimer. three whacks at him. not a terrifically great shot on the first one. you would think krejci could
7:12pm
have gone a little bit higher. he shot it right into the middle. >> dave: here is jaromir jagr, taking the spot from brad marchand. this is something claude julien looked at. bergeron, boychuk. across for bartkowski. number 43. blocked by the maple leafs and macarthur able to chip it ahead. kulemin will send it into the boston zone. >> brian: if you're thinking toronto you try and put the other team under stress as quickly as you can in a game seven. this toronto team has a lot of young guys who have never been in this situation and virtually the whole boston bruins team has many times over the last two or three years alone. >> dave: i don't imagine there are too many guys who have game seven experience that played game six the night before in a different city. good shot on reimer.
7:13pm
>> brian: that is a good point. this is like one giant game and period four. >> dave: the boston bruins find out during the game, a late call against boston. >> brian: peverley going at it. looks like they're going to get both of them going. >> dave: a great job there by peverley. clearly, boston was getting the only penalty. toronto had the puck. the officials are talking, brian >> brian: well, peverley is a very experienced guy. there is the initial there. no doubt about it. kadri wasn't very happy about it afterwards. they started jawing at each other. peverley did the smart thing. stayed right in his face. pressed the kid. the kid blew up a little. he should have walked away. there is lots of time in this game and he ends up in the penalty box. >> dave: i could not hear the
7:14pm
announcement of the penalties, brian. there may have been an extra two though each team has a man in the box, yes, the bruins are now sending shawn thornton over. so indeed an extra penalty called against boston. so toronto has the first power play of the game seven presented by kia motors. toronto would have been better compared to the bruins who scored just çthree. they went down. a huge roll. game six last night, now chara sending it all the way back to the toronto zone >> brian: chara got close to ketel right in the corner. he lost his balance as well. this is when you find out how good the nerves are or how bad.
7:15pm
>> dave: bergeron trying to hang on. back to the line van riemsdyk rolls it across. straight away. up for the touch back for kessel. kessel, the shot blocked by boychuk. back in it to the side of the net. van riemsdyk is there. poked away. now lupul. >> brian: it also hit chara's stick. that great long reach of zdeno chara made all the difference. boston is playing ugly. look at chara and van riemsdyk behind the play. chara threw him down to the ice and no penalty. wow. >> dave: brian, you know well that how a game is officiated will go a long ways to the outcome especially if one team wants to play aggressively more than the other. >> brian: i watched the warm up. he skated and almost wore himself out. the concentration is fantastic.ç >> dave: grabovski and kelly.
7:16pm
a one timer. wide open inside. grabovski knocked away by mcquaid. macarthur sends it around. john-michael liles with it now. penalty is over. he has to stay until the other two. shawn thornton is out. teams at full strength. kulemin straight away for liles. lines up. out of play. mcquaid and grabovski going at it. >> brian: john-michael liles had a fantastic shot from the point. he kept it low and it was labeled just inside the far goal post. look at the screen. tuukka rask never saw it. he was looking to his left and the puck was rolling to his right. look at rask. that's just a reaction. he could feel it coming and it just races by. look at the kelly hit on grabovski. grabovski was trying to go into the middle of the ice. chara behind the play with van riemsdyk throws him down. roman wrestling. yeah. he's got a history.
7:17pm
his dad was one in the olympics. there was a little bit right there. van riemsdyk is not a small guy. but chara is gigantic. >> dave: i mentioned at the top of the show as a team certainly boston has more game seven experience but there are some key performers for the maple leafs including van riemsdyk and lupul. they've playedç against peverl. able to reverse it back now for gunnarsson. a shot, up on the glass and out of play by tuukka rask. >> brian: claude julien just wanted his guys to play desperate. he didn't want to wait for them to get down on the scoreboard like the last couple games before they started to get desperate. they've had a lot of adversity. after the game last night in toronto their plane malfunctioned. they had to stay in toronto. toronto flew here to boston so boston was in toronto. toronto was here in boston. what is wrong with this picture? we're in boston for game seven.
7:18pm
you have to roll with the punches there. nothing felt right coming home here, 8:00, 10:30 this morning landing for the boston bruins. only toronto has been here last night. >> dave: now chipped ahead. marchand. bergeron almost right here. reimer just off the post. the pass is intercepted in the high slot by flattin. he'll send it back the other way. a fore-check will pick it up for the bruins. long, diagonal stretch pass deflected. out of play. they come together in front of the toronto bench. >> brian: the bergeron line has been shifted around. jagr is on. they only have three points in the series and one goal. they almost had their second goal. bergeron plucked it out of the air. reimer has been really good down low. they've been jamming atç him. it started off in that first two on one with krejci taking second and third chances at it. toronto a little bit slow to react here but reimer is ready again. it's fantastic.
7:19pm
the last two games reimer has been. he's had two games in the series already where he's had more than 40 saves. and you're looking at this game going in that direction the way boston is playing at the moment. >> dave: toronto for the second straight game without their center tyler bozak. a lot of speculation before they announced he was not going to play. he didn't even make it here for game seven. number 42 a former bruins draft pick was part of a trade and was in his second ever playoff game here in game seven on the road. they score!
7:20pm
>> brian: play along the wall. boston bruins have done it so far. they pulled the puck off the wall and get it to matt bartkowski who gets the puck in the zone in the first place. then lucic is up against it but they control the puck. bartkowski in the middle. a little screen there. reimer looked like it beat him home on the stick side. there was a moving screen in front of him and that is david krejci. positioning in front of the net. the boston bruins are taking it to toronto at every level. they've finally got one goal to show for it. >> dave: bartkowski with the first goal of this game seven. now another collision. the big hit on marchand.
7:21pm
matt bartkowski on the giveaway by the maple leafs. marchand off the stick and cleared ahead to van riemsdyk. back into the boston zone. chara. goes after it as much as he can to let him know that he's not going to go unnoticed with the physical play. he is pulling it out of the other maple leaf players. >> brian: zdeno chara is not going to go there but theç velocity was with chara and the whole bruin team and how they're playing right now is incredible. >> dave: mcquaid, o byrne, a trade dead laline acquisition f colorado.
7:22pm
angle off the boards. back the other way into the maple leafs' zone. bartkowski's first career playoff goal in just his second game. he only played a little over 6:30 minutes in the one other game he played in the series, brian. up the far side now. deep pass. lupul. he's behind -- save! >> brian: a very opportunistic player, very sneaky scorer and great wheels. a couple goals in this series already. tuukka rask just grabbed him on this play as he came in all alone. ♪ ♪
7:23pm
[ male announcer ] this is a reason to look twice. this is a stunning work of technology. the 2013 lexus es and the first-ever es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection.
7:24pm
lupul has great speed. he catches zdeno chara a little flat footed. chara tried to poke the puck and it went right off lupul and in front of him. chara ends up reaching out, gets it with the high stick, chara in the penalty box for high-sticking. power play toronto. >> brian: second power play for the leafs presented by kia.
7:25pm
>> dave: peverley off his stick and backhanded by boychuk for the bruins back into the maple leafs zone. bartkowski with the first goal of the game seven unassisted at 5:39. now tuukka rask. bartkowski will wrap it around. boston able to hold it in. bartkowski angles it off the glass and down the ice. keeping the puck along the wall is the key for the boston bruins. they don't want to get toronto set up. keep their face in the glass. keep picking it off the wall. you can put pressure on the puck, carry it in, and get it back down the ice. >> puts on the brakes. angles it back off the boards now for dion phaneuf. pailleç off the stick and blasd it out to center ice.
7:26pm
van riemsdyk hit by paille sends it around. joffrey lupul there. along the boards. 45 seconds remaining on the chara penalty. now van riemsdyk. trying to get some separation from the aggressive boston penalty kill. now kessel. got back up. now to kessel. tried to redirect the pass. back to kessel. he waits. looks -- paille over, nice job by the toronto defensemen. they keep it alive. lupul now for kessel. ten seconds on the power play. save. rebound! they score! cody franson puts in a rebound.
7:27pm
>> brian: moved in from the point. just good old fashioned hammer it from the point and get a rebound. tuukka rask couldn't find it in the pile and cody franson moved in and found it. they go from low to high. get it to number three. there's an alley way. off to the side ofç the net. everybody thinks rask has it for a moment but he stopped the initial shot, couldn't handle it. james van riemsdyk is the reason why. van riemsdyk had the stick in there. gives a good whack at it. loosens it up. as he is being pushed away, from dougie hamilton -- by dougie hamilton, the rebound is put in by franson. so after a terrific start physically puck possession wise and everything the boston bruins, it's 1-1. >> dave: cody franson's second of this series, his third career playoff goal. and what a response by toronto on the road here in this game seven. chara for krejci, deflects it
7:28pm
now into the toronto zone. now grabovski. grabovski, macarthur. puts on the brakes. late man coming. >> brian: pretty vicious shot for lucic after that shot, too. >> dave: now lucic deflected to krejci. nathan horton. across, out of the air by gunnarsson. still alive in the toronto zone. the halfç way mark of the firs period of game seven, eastern conference. out to the line. bartkowski for horton. the shot doesn't get through. bartkowski again. one off the corner boards. krejci in deep. krejci has had a terrific series
7:29pm
with 11 points. the overall lead, playoff lead. now the puck away -- deflected away on the boards. three on two. trying to go -- kelly down. >> brian: great by franson on that three on two. >> dave: sends it deep. colborne. collision there. now chara. second big hit for orr on zdeno chara. van riemsdyk ends up getting the assist on the goal. nearly got a two on the far side. a nifty redirection. centering attempt blocked by the bruins. now it comes to the front again. the bruins get a stick -- rolls
7:30pm
it in, çseguin. reimer off to liles. >> brian: toronto has done a good job here of turning the table after that start by the bruins. more and more puck possession and confidence. >> dave: kadri goes down after getting a shot on van riemsdyk with a hit on marchand. it's back the other way. van riemsdyk for kadri. lucic. kadri with a big hit. bergeron hits the line. he gets the shot. an unassisted goal by bartkowski on the power play by the defenseman cody franson has tied the game at one. i'm going to miss your smell. you were my first. what? i knew it. i knew it. it's true. oh man, i'm sorry i broke your leg. i wrote a song...

7:33pm
you could see his frustration level. there's been a lot of stuff let go already. i think the refs have done a good job. they want to let these guys play the game seven, too. >> dave: trying to lift it out of there. just missed paille. the puck is wide of the toronto wall, brian >> brian: he missed half but got the other half. paille wasn't happy. >> dave: slapped away by orr who played earlier in his career briefly with the boston bruins. a couple connections on these two rosters as o'byrne steps into his man. lil liles, mcclement. now rask. off the boards. lucic. slides it ahead to david krejci. back to nathan horton. horton a shot blocked. now krejci. all the way out to the line. bartkowski now for lucic again.
7:34pm
boychuk. wide. krejci tries to get his stick out. joffrey lupul gets toç it. ahead. one down by nathan horton. they come to center ice and picked up -- bartkowski plays it aggressively. colbor colborne. save made by rask out of nowhere. colborne gets a great chance. >> brian: did he ever. he picked up the loose change after lupul got along the boards. the bruins were slow to react. >> dave: here's gardiner with kessel. gardiner with a shot. he just fired it too high. >> brian: dave, i don't remember a game seven like this one. this mean and nasty and openly aggressive physically. in game sevens you always think we can't take penalties. you heard claude julien. if you're going to play this way and both teams are then you are going to end up in the penalty box at times unless they cool it
7:35pm
down. >> brian: usually guys are a little more conservative on game seven. marchand angles just enough by boston, preventing him from getting to the scoring area he was looking for as van riemsdyk gets the backhand out. here's kessel. that was off the stick of chara. dave gardiner moved up on the play. gardiner sends it back now for liles. he'll roll it in deep. bounce off the stick. now chara. for marchand. again, it's jagr out here. bergeron and marchand. co far in the first period, his shot goes wide of reimer. and kulemin back the other way with macarthur and grabovski. into the glove of tuukka rask he will hold it there. a little scrum there. 1-1 here in game seven. r sensit, there's fusion proglide. our micro thin blades are thinner than a surgeon's scalpel for our gentlest shave.

7:39pm
toronto maple leafs to take one step closer toward the boston net again at times and he is out there again. >> dave: i think we'll see chara out there for a good 30 minutes in this game tonight. there is chara. that's blocked by orr. over skates the puck. gunnarsson back inside. oh, my. now jake gardiner. the 22-year-old who played three years at the university of wisconsin. he jumped into a situation here with injuries on defense for toronto. >> brian: toronto -- took that nasty shot to the face. gardiner comes in to replace him, a completely different kind of player. cody franson has played with both of them most of the time. franson has had to make adjustments to play with two very different types of defensemen and has done a heck of a job doingç it. >> dave: gardiner showed last night in game six he wasn't afraid to jump in. >> bob: he is a wild musmustang

welcome to the lexus intermission report. anson played 24 stanley playoff games during his nhl career. after 20 minutes in boston it's 1-1 between the maple leafs and the bruins. anson, which player had the most eventful first period? >> i would say cody franson. cody franson was the perfect example of why you have to have a short memory to play in game seven. he went from goat to hill in a hurry. cody finds it blowing snow on the initial fore-check and the bruins' heavy attack caught the
7:48pm
turn over at the bruins' first goal. he is going to make up for it later on in the period russ though he is able to come down on the power play as you see here, out numbered by bruins defenders. look at the loose puck. he taps it in to make it a 1-1 hockey game. now the period was progressing.% breaking the three on two and then, you know, gave him a chance to really come out of that period 1-1. cody franson, able to hang his hat and get down after that first initial miscue, he would have been in trouble. he was able to pick himself up and forget about it. >> three times during the first six games these two teams have been tied after one period n all three of those games the toronto maple leafs have won that game. more pressure on boston now tied after 20 minutes. >> nothing to lose. they gave the maple leafs a chance to win the series and the fact they were able to battle back and force a game seven, all the pressure as the game stays close going toward the second and third period has to be on

welcome back. coming up at the top of the hour on the nbc sports network another game seven for the second strade year the washington capitals and new york rangers have taken it to the ç limit. the home team has won each game of the series and tonight it will be played in d.c. last five games of the series have been one goal, a couple 1-0 games including yesterday's game six at madison square garden. >> brian, all these games have been really tight. can you take us through the team's mindset when you have a goalie like this playing behind

you? >> we have a lot of faith. obviously he is our mvp. we try to protect the lead but it's great he's there. >> yesterday you were involved in a fracas at the end of the game. does it carry over into game seven? >> i think so. there is too much on the line. emotions are high. >> how do you win in this building? >> i think you just got to get back to the way we played at home. we had good moments last game in this building. just two overtime losses. we're close. we got a lot of faith. >> as the numbers will suggest this series is a tight one. who has been the best player on either game through the six games. >> the goaltenders. henrik lundqvist has been a rock for the new york rangers as they struggled to score goals over the course of the series he has been the one consistent control game in and game out. the capitals started off theç

series very hot and lundqvist was a rock in the net and braden holtby on the other end, really getting no recognition. he's been outstanding for the capitals. even though they scored last game against him it wasn't his fault. went off alexey's hand. can't really fault him for that. both goalies tight checking game. a low scoring affair. solid goaltending. those are the two players to look out for tonight. >> no points in the last four games of the series by alex ovechkin. in his career he's never gone five games without scoring a point whether regular season or postseason. from the way you've seen him play in the first six do you expect him to break out tonight? >> i do. good job shutting down ovechkin but a lot of chances, a lot of scoring opportunities. you can't keep a sniper like that down for too long so nice to see him break out tonight. >> back to the td garden when we return. it is 1-1 after one. matt bartkowski his first career nhl goal for the bs. cody franson for toronto.
